Argentina, what an amazing country, and to think we were only going to visit Bariloche from Chile.  Thank goodness we shipped Red here or we may not  have discovered this beautiful, diverse, huge windswept country.

We spent a fun week in Buenos Aires eati...

After waving Red off from the dock in Veracuz with a soggy hankerchief and a tear in my eye I hefted my rucksack onto my back and headed for the bus station, destination Central America. We have a month to backpack this area whilst Red relaxes on his cruise to Buenos A...

It had been ten years since we spent a summer in the UK, so after returning for our niece’s  wedding, we decided to stay for four months.  It was fabulous to travel along the south coast, walk part of the South West Coast Path from Padstow to St Ives, dog-sit Ozzy and...

After a few weeks of sweating in the jungle and feeding the local mosquito and ant populations we needed a break. It was time to head to the coast for some RnR.  Belize beckoned, well Caye Caulker did and the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.

After a couple of weeks of staying overnight in RV trailer parks and campsites we had had enough of noisy neighbours and dirty bathrooms and, more importantly, especially for Dave, the cost, so it was time to boondock, ie. finding places to park overnight for free.  Mo...

The sun is just rising behind the hills and creating long shadows as I jog down the beach watching the pelicans sweeping above the waves.  What an idyllic spot, Cerritos Playa just South of Todo Santos on the Baja peninsula Mexico.  After driving for a week, we stopped...

We were all set for the next leg of our journey into Mexico.  Red had his oil changed, new filters, brake check and pimped with a new set of tyres. He was running like a dream as we pulled into a state park for the night near the border with Mexico, it was dark, we wer...

It has been a busy six weeks, after leaving Red in Compton LA, we flew home and travelled the length and breadth of the UK, sleeping in twenty different beds and boosting the national rail coffers. We returned to the UK to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday and brother i...
